The Best Night-Out I Had In College (Ohh, I love the Night Life!)

I must admit night life has been a huge part of college life. The usual Friday night gathering with friends over a few drinks for there were still tons of things to talk about though we see each other everyday. I had a few good nights-out with friends over the last four years in college. Though the best night-out I had in college happened before we started our internship. We thoroughly enjoyed the party! We made the most out of it dahil fourth-year (students) na kami! "We won't be experiencing this next year!" we reminded ourselves so we danced throughout the night.

I was just a bit disappointed because I wasn't able to take good photos throughout the party considering I was using a 16.2 megapixels digital camera with 10x lens. I say, my digicam does take good quality photos in broad daylight. However, when it comes to taking photos at night or dark, you cannot guarantee that it would be as crisp and clear. One more thing, I like to apply filters on my photos which …

Why Sony's EXTRA BASS line-up perfect for Electronic Dance Music

Last year my cousins played for one of the baluartes competing in celebration of our town fiesta. I've never been so proud of my cousins since I saw them play live. They turned an instant street party! It was so much fun. They played from sunset to evening and people were waiting for more when they had to end the "mini concert". I, too felt bitin perhaps because we had to wait since it took them an hour or so to set everything, the musical instruments and all. But everything is worth thewait for they really played well and got us all entertained considering they were young, college freshmen. How I wish I had a portable speaker that time that can cater to their needs. That way, they could have started earlier so waiting time is avoided. They used huge speakers kasi to ensure loud, bold sound throughout the concert since they were playing outdoors. However, they had to pack up earlier also because it looked like it was going to rain. Thus, we asked for more.

SM Moments Throughout The Years #FamFirstAtSM

My kids, my family are my top priorities. They are the primary reason why I work extra hard and stay up late at night to earn a bit more. This way, I could provide their growing needs. Their happiness are my happiness and my sacrifices are for their convenience. Pag masaya sila, masaya na rin ako. What makes them really happy is when I finally tell them, "Pupunta tayo sa SM bukas!" You should see the look on their faces, a mixture of surprise and excitement. It's something that I would love to see everyday. Then, my kids would sleep early the night before and wake up early the next day with eagerness. They'd finish their plate, take a bath and wear their best clothes. We'd go to the terminal and wait patiently for the van to leave (which usually takes an hour). How I wish the nearest SM is not 2 hours (utmost) away from us. 
SM Supermalls has always been a part of my summer ever since I had my kids. When summer approaches, I wish I have gcs to spend for them so …

My Mother's Day Story #NationalSuperMomsDay

I was pregnant with my daughter (my bunso) when I started working as a freelance writer. I was 21 years old back then. I wanted to help my husband in saving money for my labor and hospital expenses. My husband doesn't earn much as a painter for a construction company thus I wanted to help him badly. I never told my client that I was pregnant because I was afraid that she would reject me once she discovered. Nine months later, she was so surprised when I revealed that I gave birth. I wasn't able to finish my remaining tasks and haven't answered her emails for a week. Still she decided to keep me. I continued working a month later. I knew I needed to earn extra cash for my kids' growing needs. I have my two year old son and my baby who constantly needs diaper, vitamins, and milk. It was very challenging and stressful. I work and take care of my kids at the same time. I take care of them in the day, catch some work when they were taking a nap or playing, and working some…

Extended Playtime With OFF! for Kids & OFF! Overtime

My parents grow a lot of fruit trees at their place. They have banana, jack fruit, guava, atis, avocado, and calamansi. Every weekends we drop them a visit. My son and I look forward to our favorite activity which is calamansi-picking, then we make calamansi juice. My son loves fresh calamansi juice. It's very healthy! However, I worry about letting my son stay outdoors for hours because of dengue-carrying mosquitoes. I was once bitten by an infected mosquito in 2013. I had Chikungunya right after getting bitten by a mosquito. It was my first time to get that viral disease. I had fever for several days. I remember I couldn't get up. My joints were swelling. I had joint pains here and there. My hubby had to carry me when I need to use the bathroom. I couldn't forget that particular experience in my life because it was very alarming.

According to WHO, Chikungunya is a viral disease which is transmitted to humans by infected mosquitoes...The name originates from a verb in th…
